Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 18, 2020

A rapper who bragged about defrauding the government's unemployment program in a music video has been arrested on federal charges of carrying out the exact scheme he mentioned in his video, according to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Fontrell Antonio Baines, 31, who goes by the stage name "Nuke Bizzle" was arrested after applying for more than $1.2 million in jobless benefits and using stolen identities in a scheme to fraudulently obtain unemployment insurance benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Baines appears in a music video called "EDD" in which he boasts about doing "my swagger for EDD" and, holding up a stack of envelopes from EDD, getting rich by "go[ing] to the bank with a stack of these" - presumably a reference to the debit cards that come in the mail. A second rapper in the video intones, "You gotta sell cocaine, I just file a claim."

Literally LMAO. I mean you can't make this kind of stuff up. Throw the book at him. Someone just used my name in attempted unemployment fraud as well as several other people I know. Apparently this is a huge thing at the moment.

Could this be the incident that makes the far-left "get it"? Handing-out money to everyone that asks has never worked; there must be limits...

Unfortunately, no lessons will be learned and we'll keep feeding the squirrels. Sad

Probably because fraud isn't as rampant as righties make it seem and, therefore, we're not idiot sociopaths like righties.
